“Wake up Cassy!” an ecstatic Chelsea screamed into my ears, Chelsea has been my best friend since freshman year in high school and is now my college roommate. “What do you want Chelsea?” I grumbled as I tried to untangle myself from the sheets. “Time to get you a valentine, you were pretty before, but but the new you is stunning, no sane guy will be able to resist you!” My eyes flash with pain as I replay what has been engraved into my mind, “Fatty Cassy” he chants as tears well up in my baby blue eyes, as I run away with blurry vision. “Cassy snap out of it!
